Desktop and Cloud Database Access
Schedule it offers 2 different methods to connect your desktop application and cloud database together and each offer different benefits. You must choose if you want to use a direct connection or a synchronised connection. You cannot use both methods.
Direct Cloud Access
Using direct cloud access you open a live connection to your cloud database from the desktop menu File/Open/Cloud. No synchronization is needed as every read and write is done live on your database in the cloud.AdvantagesAll data is live to both desktop users and users with a browser, no synchronisation is needed.
Multiple users of the desktop application can open the same database from any worldwide location.
All your data is online not just selected data.
Depending on your Internet speed the desktop application can sometimes seem slower as data is downloaded live.
There is no local database if you lose the Internet connection. You must wait for the Internet connection to be restored before you can continue working.
All your data is online on our servers not just selected data.
Desktop and Cloud Synchronised Connection
Using a synchronized connection to your cloud database allows you to choose what information is sent and when it is sent.
You have a local and cloud database for extra backup options.
You can still work without a Internet connection then synchronise when the connection is restored.
You can choose which information is online and when to synchronise.
The desktop application is fast as all data is local and only synchronised when you action it or automatically at timed intervals.
Multiple users of the desktop application can open the same local database and only one needs to sync data with your cloud database.
Information is not instantly live unless you choose to sync on each change or at regular intervals.
Other users of the desktop application must have access to your locally stored database.
